    I think the general thinking over here was that many fish did recover from it.
    I've not heard anyone say that there was an unusually high number of dead fish around or after spawning either.

    On the Northie we suffer from disease every year, some years worse than others.
    It normally starts to ease off end of April and clear by end of May.
    Last year disease was still on the go in July.
    There was also quite a few dead red belly on the Southie, which doesn't suffer nearly so bad with disease normally.
    On both rivers, there was also a lot of seafront suffering.
    Normally the only diseases seafront I see is in the winter after spawning.

    Cheers

    35years ago, we were catching silver springers at Granholme on the Don during a freezing Feb , bright orange bellies. Then thought to be caused by anti freeze from Dyce airport . Could pollution be the cause rot this red belly?
